There were 2 models, as there often are, "good" nd "better" made from 1981 to 1984. Yours is a February 12, 1982 from Kalamazoo.

The MV-2 featured offset double cutaway, rosewood fingerboard, 6 on one side tuners, 2 humbuckers. antique Sunburst or Candy Apple Red. Gibson has not chosen or omitted to mention types of wood for body & neck. At the time, they were heavily into not just mahogany, but basswood and alder.

The MV-10 had an ebony fingerboard and a stacked coil pickup with a coil tap switch. Candy Apple Red or Twilight Blue. I can not find any published values for these models.
